Fantasy and Horror
In a world where dogmatic science has replaced tyrannical religion, the Shapeshifters – those with the ability to take animal form – are ruthlessly hunted down by the ruling Logos. Janwar is a teenager with a nascent gift for Shapeshifting, whose ambitious father is appalled by his son’s proclivity; Alicia is a rebel daughter of the aristocracy, unashamed of her affinity with the animal world. Together with their Shapeshifting friends – Diana the intuitive Dwarf, William the magical adept, Rowena the Rhino and Francis, a mole in the Logos - they must find and rescue Queen Elfina, who has been spirited away because of her Otherworldly sympathies.
Elfina in her turn has a larger destiny to fulfil: reconciling the forces of science, led by the diabolical Roger Bacon, and resurgent religion, led by the charismatic Zeus Messiah. She has the ancient elemental powers of the earth at her disposal, along with the help of the Shapeshifters, but will that be enough to pacify these old enemies?
A page-turning drama that addresses a central mythology of our times, Shapeshifters is also a real-world exploration of the larger humanity that emerges from embodying animal spirits.
